National Ice Cream Day

National Ice Cream Day

 

Thanks to President Ronald Reagan, who had an affinity for ice cream, July is national ice cream month. In 1984 he made it official by designating July 15th as “National Ice Cream Day.” How yummy is that!

There’s something so nostalgic about ice cream. Whenever I see pistachio or maple walnut ice cream I think of my dad who visited Friendly’s on a weekly basis for a cold scoop or two, in a sugar cone of course. Most people have positive associations with the rich frozen treat, making ice cream the ultimate comfort food.

I’ll take any excuse for a celebratory scoop, so this month I’m indulging.
Some of my favorite ice creams include Ben & Jerry’s Greek Raspberry Fudge Chunk, Lick’s Hill Country Honey & Vanilla Bean and Melt’s Mint –to-Be.

As a no-fat option (it’s still swimsuit season), I’m jazzing up my lipstick menu with ice cream-colored options. Craving strawberry? Pucker up with Susan Posnick’s COLORESSENTIAL lipstick in Shanghai or LA. Prefer orange sherbet? Opt for Miami or Boca.

Summer is the perfect time to take a risk with lip colors. One of my favorite looks is wearing pastel eye shadow colors with COLOREYEDEFINE rose quartz/smokey quartz, with a bold lipstick for a hot summertime statement.

Unlike a bowl of ice cream, COLORESSENTIALs vitamin rich lipstick is calorie-free and long lasting. Count me in.

Say hello to Christie Seal

Christie, husband and sonMy life is all I could have imagined and more. I married my love & best friend 12 years ago. We were blessed with our son “Breaker” 2 1/2 years ago and #2 is on the way. I had no idea just how much I would love being a mom and how much busier life would become; all the more reason why I love Susan Posnick Cosmetics. I started using them about the time I met my husband and haven’t worn anything else since. Her products just make sense. I’m 38 years old and often get mistaken for much younger, in large part because of how beautiful my skin looks. Her products make my morning makeup routine easy & COLORFLO provides healthy sun protection. Best of all, they go everywhere with me- even in my backpack when we go hiking and camping!

Some of my go-to summer essentials:

Susan Posnick COLORFLO M8 & Bronzer for sun protection and sun-kissed looking skin.

Mama Mio face wash & wipes- In fact, I use many of their products because I like their ‘no nasties’ promise.

Brush On Block
developed by Susan, for my son & husband. I like that it simply brushes on, is sweat & water resistant and non-greasy.

Sunglasses with good UV protection. Oakley Holbrook Violet Iridium Polarized with Matte black as they extremely durable and fashionable.

HatPeter Grimm ‘ Hannah Sun Hat’

Water Bottle – by S’well.

Currently reading KEEP IT SHUT, when I can squeeze in a few moments. The book gives sound advice about what to say, how to say it and when to say nothing at all. Good lessons for us, don’t you think?

Women In The Revolution

Women In The Revolution
JULY 4th- INDEPENDENCE DAY
Women In The RevolutionAs we celebrate this important holiday, the names George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Paul Revere all come to mind, but there were also many women who fought for our independence-in a variety of ways.Women were thought not intelligent enough to understand complex war strategy, so they proved to make excellent spies- providing food and peddling wares to the British, while keeping their ears open for information.

My favorite story is that of Grace and Rachel Martin who grew tired of the British treatment of women and children. When they learned that British officers carrying important documents were going to be close to their home, they dressed up as men, grabbed shotguns, ambushed the British officers and then turned the documents over to the Patriots. In an ironic twist to the story, when they returned home- again dressed as women, they found the same officers enjoying a meal that their mother had prepared (everyone had to be accommodating to the British soldiers.) Fortunately for them, the soldiers did not recognize them, nor did they sit down at the table.

There was Penelope Barker who formed the lesser known Edenton Tea Party, organizing women together to boycott not only tea, but all things British –made. Without firing a shot, they showed the British where the power was really held- in the hands of those who rocked the cradle.
From Betsy Ross who sewed the first flag, to Molly McCauley( known as Molly Pitcher), who took over firing the canon after her husband was injured, women played an active role in fighting for our independence.
